Description

Asha Nayaswami was in constant contact with Swami Kriyananda for forty-four years as a devotee, friend, personal assistant and finally spiritual leader. From the beginning, Swami asked her to take notes for the book she would one day write. Thus was born this best seller: Light Bearer, a first-hand account of life with a great teacher (Swami Kriyananda), which, after enjoying great success in America, Asha will be presenting in several cities in Italy and Europe.
 
Asha is an inexhaustible source of inspiration; through anecdotes, true stories, questions and answers, great humor and deep wisdom she will share with us how we, too, can become messengers of Light in our daily lives, for ourselves and those around us.

This will be an unforgettable sasang, valuable for those who have already had the opportunity to meet Asha and listen to her talks, but even more valuable for those who, through this satsang, will be able to begin attuning themselves to the enlightened wisdom of Paramhamsa Yoganada's teachings.


Your teacher:

Opportunity

Next time you come to Ananda, sign up for the program Yoga in Action to get a taste of community service and receive a discount on the cost of the course. You can choose the option Yoga in Action for any course where this program is available and you can continue with this option as long as you wish. Your service project might change each day.

When we learn to serve with the right attitude, this is a spiritual practice and is called Karma Yoga. The daily practice of Karma Yoga is a joyful and practical spiritual discipline that will benefit every aspect of your life.

At Ananda, there are two levels of the Yoga in Action option:

Yoga in Action Level 1

75€/course of 5 days

With Level 1, you will serve for a period of one and a half hours. This experience gives you a chance to contribute to the beautiful atmosphere of Ananda.

Yoga in Action Level 2

35€/course of 5 days

Yoga in Action Level 2 is only available if you have had prior experience of the Yoga in Action Level 1 option, or any of the Community Living Programs. With Level 2, you will serve for a period of three hours, split into two periods of daily service.
